During the April 28 broadcast of Married at First Sight: Unfiltered, Ryan watched back a Season 12 clip in which he was telling Clara that he wasn't "too nervous" about Decision Day, which was looming right around the corner.
"You're saying you're not too nervous here," Unfiltered host Jamie Otis pointed out, "but do you have any doubts going into Decision Day?"
"I think that we have laid a really, really strong foundation," Ryan replied.
"Clara and I continuously talk through things and have disagreements -- we certainly do -- but the things that have me confident are the way we handle those things."
On Married at First Sight's twelfth season, Clara recently rated her marriage "a 10 out of 10" even though she and Ryan had yet to consummate their marriage.
Given Clara had been hoping to be intimate with Ryan since their honeymoon in Las Vegas, Jamie -- who starred on Season 1 of Married at First Sight -- asked Ryan whether he thought their lack of a sex life might affect Clara's choice on Decision Day.
"I don't believe so. I personally don't believe so," Ryan responded.
"I know in a lot of our conversations, I just feel like we've got a laser focus and understanding of what the other [person] needs to make things work."
Ryan's Married at First Sight co-star Haley Harris and MAFS expert Pastor Calvin Roberson also appeared on the Unfiltered broadcast, and Haley shared what was in her heart going into Decision Day given her marriage to Jacob Harder was tumultuous for most of the extreme experiment.

"Jake and I obviously have not had the easiest of times through all of this. We've had a lot of ups and downs, but at the end of the day, you know, this is a big deal."
Haley continued, "I signed up to do this because I wanted to be committed to somebody, so I think I just have to take everything into account that we've been through so far."
Pastor Cal urged Haley to "consider everything" before potentially opting for a divorce.
"I think you understand that Jake is a good guy," Pastor Cal said.
"I think that he has a good heart and there are a lot of positive qualities. I think it's important again for you to look at all of that in its totality. You don't want to make a decision before you consider everything."
Pastor Cal also gave Ryan some advice as he contemplates his decision on whether to stay with Clara or divorce her.
"Don't allow any temporary issues to make you forget about what you have created," Pastor Cal begged. "You created something special. If you keep on that trend, you're going to do well."
With that being said, Ryan admitted he was "anxious and excited" about Decision Day.
Ryan noted he was appreciative of Pastor Cal's guidance.
"A lot of the foundational things that we discussed when we talked about love at our first visit a couple of weeks back had really echoed in my brain and just really [helped me] understand, 'What does it mean to love someone? How do I love someone?'" Ryan told Jamie.
"Those things are kind of constantly playing in my head, and I know they'll be a part of my decision-making process heading into Decision Day," Ryan explained.
Clara previously insisted that although she seemed really frustrated and upset about Ryan's reluctance to have sex on the show, it wasn't a make or break thing in her marriage.
"We are so raw and emotional and connected and on the same page that we are wildly intimate with each other."
Ryan said on the April 7 episode of Unfiltered he wasn't looking for a perfect moment to have sex with his wife but just wanted to wait until the time felt right.
Clara has gushed on Married at First Sight that her relationship with Ryan is the best one she's ever been in, however, she has also expressed concern over Ryan never saying "I love you" to a woman before and whether her strong feelings for Ryan would ever be reciprocated.
But Ryan didn't like feeling pressure to say those important three words, and he told the cameras in a confessional, "I hope Clara is not upset by it, but I'm definitely not ready [to say 'I love you.']"
Ryan, however, said he hoped they could work on goal-setting together and aligning their future plans. Ryan was apparently still wondering what pushes and inspires Clara in life, and he was in seemingly in search for a religious or spiritual connection with his wife as well.
Clara told Ryan during their last date before Decision Day that she felt like they were two pieces of a puzzle that fit perfectly together, and Ryan said they were uniquely bound in this shared experience and would have a connection "no matter what happens."
Clara got emotional and asked Ryan if they could talk about "Decision Day" in a more positive light going forward.
Clara revealed she was 100 percent certain about her decision because Ryan is everything she was looking for in a husband and life partner. She said best case scenario, they'd grow together, start a family and live happily ever after. She admitted she was scared to get her heart broken.
